Leafly: Why is pro-legalization Amazon suddenly banning weed grinders?

little more than a year ago Amazon announced that it would stop testing its employees for cannabis use, and would lobby Congress to end the federal prohibition of marijuana.

The announcement came as welcome news to many of us in the cannabis world. We see too many companies continue to threaten their employees with nonsense drug-testing policies.

Amazon is all for cannabis legalization. But they won’t allow you to buy a grinder.
